You are referring to the key and tumbler assembly. It requires special tools to remove the steering wheel and steering lock plate. It also requires a special tool for the installation. It would be cheaper to have a mechanic do it.

Why does the trunk latch on my 2004 Chevrolet Malibu not work?

I'm having the same problem - I took it in to our mechanic as the lockset was also seized up from not being used. Turns out the new part (including the electric solonoid) is about $500. Our Malibu has nearly 200K on it & I felt it was not worth it. I'm trying to find a used one, but they don't seem to be around. Let me know if you find anything...
